50 Flat Twist Hairstyles For a Chic and Stylish Look

by Sherri Owens

Twist hair is no doubt the simplest and most convenient protective hairstyle you can get done. You might be familiar with getting twists on box braids, but flat twists have allowed the luxury of making cornrows using twists.

Flat twists have saved me more times than I can count. It is my go-to hairstyle when I have an occasion to attend but don't have enough time to prepare for it. I use it when I dye my hair and want to give it time to relax. This also protects it before I go for a more demanding style.

Despite being a quick and easy style to do, I like looking stunning and classy with my twist hairstyles, thus the search for pretty twists. While on the quest for stylish hairstyles, here are the most elegant and convenient looks I came across.

Flat Twist Hairstyles For A Stunning Look

1. Double Twist With High Bun

We all had at least one elementary school teacher that rocked this hairdo. The large twist hair placed in a high bun has a formal look to it. This is a nice hairstyle you can recreate with your natural hair.

2. All Back Flat Twist Styles

This is my go-to hairstyle for when I want my hair to relax and strengthen before I get a major hair transition. This has helped me maintain healthy hair despite changing hairstyles frequently.

3. Mohawk Flat Twists

If you've got scanty hair, this hairstyle will be a great option for you. The hair has medium twists that are placed in a neat mohawk at the top of the head. If your hair is not long enough for the style, you can add hair extensions.

4. Flat Twists With Loose Strands

Flat twisted hair does not favor a particular hair type. You can slay with your flat twists hairstyle regardless of your own hair length, type or texture. This is a nice style to try on short hair.

Mixing colors in a single style is a nice way to improve the versatility and impression of your hairdo. Here, brown extensions are used together with black hair twists to create a charming look. I suggest using a brighter shade of blonde for a more pronounced look.
